My 6 Favorite Ab Moves for a Tighter Tummy & Stronger Core

My 6 Favorite Ab Moves for a Tighter Tummy & Stronger Core

Just because summer is over doesn't mean that you should let your midsection go to pot.  Consistently eating well and getting your strength training in will not only have you feeling and looking better, it will also keep your core strong to prevent common areas of weakness (good-bye lower back pain) and keep your posture in check.

Don't forget that compound movements like squats, deadlifts, lunges and rows also seriously strengthen the core.  I like to really focus on engaging my inner thigh (adductor) muscles as well as my gluteal muscles in any movement (even when sitting and standing) which keep those abdominal muscles working hard! 

When you do this series please leave a comment below letting me know if you felt your abdominals working.

*On the moves with two sides, be sure to do both sides so when the reps (in the pink circle) indicate 20, you're doing 10 per side.  Repeat the sequence at least 3 times and feel those abs burn!

I obtained my Personal Training and Health Coach Certifications from The American Council on Exercise. I also have a nutrition certification through Precision Nutrition, which is a program that seemed tailor made for me as they teach a common sense approach to nutrition that is closely aligned with how I live. Obtaining these certifications along with the development of life coaching skills have allowed me to feel confident in my knowledge and ability to help my clients find their way.
